My Sewing Machine has Made Me the Envy of My Friends

I decided that I would purchase an embroidery machine so that I could monogram clothing, linens, and bags. I shopped around because I didn’t need something too fancy – just something that would get the job done well. I researched the best sewing machine to buy and ended up with a fabulous one that didn’t break my college student budget.

It did take a little bit of time to learn how to use the embroidery sewing machine because I did not have any experience with one prior to this purchase. After reading the manual and watching many instructional videos, I was able to figure the machine out and begin producing quality monograms. I began monogramming for my family and friends for free because I wanted an excuse to use my new toy, but a friend convinced me to begin charging for my beautiful designs.
I began charging $5 – $10 a monogram depending on the size, and a small little business was started. Before I knew it, I had orders piling up, and it was all thanks to my new embroidery sewing machine. My friends were playfully envious of my success, but I know that they appreciated the hand-crafted monogram designs that graced their belongings’ presence. I would recommend this machine as one of the best embroidery sewing machines to buy because, even with excessive use, it has held up fantastically and still works like it is brand new.

I have had this machine for 3 months, and I’m looking at purchasing another one to expand my small business with the help of my roommate. I really have a lot to owe this machine! It’s been so great, and I’m looking forward to continuing to use it alongside the next one I purchase to grow my business!

“Sew” much fun!

After my baby girl, Eleanor, was born, my mother came into town, as mothers often do, bringing gifts for me, my daughter, and my husband. Like us, she was overjoyed at the new addition to our family and couldn’t wait to celebrate.

I have to say, though, that when I opened my gift and saw that it was a sewing machine, I was not too pleased. You would think that a brand new mom would be given a gift card to the spa, not a new gadget that requires learning a new skill amongst all else going on. I pretended that I loved it (of course), and it proceeded to sit in my closet until Eleanor was about one.

I happened upon some beginner sewing machine reviews one day and saw that the sewing machine my mom bought was featured in it. I remembered the sewing machine in my closet and decided to make the best of it and give sewing a try. Though it took quite awhile to learn, the sewing machine that I was gifted was amazing and certainly built for beginners. The pamphlet that came with it walked me through all the necessary steps, and I learned how to use each of the settings of the machine with no problem. Not soon after I learned, I began sewing Eleanor some simple clothes. I found that I actually could have fun sewing!


This beginner sewing machine helped me make “me” time as I discovered a new hobby. I love that the sewing machine is light weight but powerful. The foot pedal is easy to control, and I feel that I can sew at my own speed. My mother and friends are astonished by the adorable outfits this little machine churns out! My only regret is that I did not pick up sewing (and this fabulous machine) earlier! This machine certainly does its job efficiently and is a fun item to own!
